Former Syracuse Basketball Player Arrested on Drug Charges in Miami amid Diddy Combs’ Sex Trafficking Investigation

Brendan Paul, Former Syracuse player, arrested on drug charges for allegedly being a courier for Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs

Miami-Dade police records have confirmed that former Syracuse guard Brendan Paul was arrested on drug-related charges in Miami. The arrest occurred as federal agents were raiding rapper Sean “Diddy” Combs’ properties in Los Angeles and Miami as part of an alleged sex trafficking investigation.

Paul was charged with possession of suspected cocaine and marijuana candy, which are felony offenses. Although he was released on bond, he is scheduled for a hearing in April. However, the timing of Paul’s arrest coincided with the raid of Combs’ properties, but they are not related.

Allegations have emerged linking Paul to Combs’ sex trafficking case. In a federal lawsuit filed in February, it was claimed that Paul worked as Combs’ “mule,” acquiring and distributing drugs and guns. Combs has denied these allegations, stating that they are baseless and without merit. However, Paul’s attorney has stated that they intend to address the issues in court rather than in the media.

Brendan Paul started his basketball career as a walk-on at Syracuse in 2018 but later transferred to Division-II Fairmont State to finish his collegiate career. Despite his brief tenure at Syracuse, Paul’s name has now become associated with Combs’ legal troubles, which will no doubt impact his future prospects in basketball and beyond.
